Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

The Saint Louis University Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism provides comprehensive patient care services, educates the next generation of physicians and fosters research experience with the goal of providing meaningful contributions to the field.

We treat a spectrum of endocrine disorders including type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus, other forms of diabetes mellitus, disorders of the adrenal gland and pituitary, thyroid disorders, parathyroid disorders, obesity and hypogonadism.


The modern division of endocrinology began in 1977 with its first division director, Coy Fitch, M.D. Under his leadership, Stewart Albert, M.D., and Alan Silverberg, M.D., were recruited and both remain pillars of the division today.

Research and growth within the division flourished under the future directorship of Arshag Mooradian, M.D., at which time the first clinical fellow, Marla Bernbaum, M.D., joined and later became integral in the development of the fellowship program.  

John Morley, M.D., assumed the role of division director, guiding both the divisions of endocrinology and geriatrics. 

The long standing tradition of research and clinical excellence continues to this day under the enthusiasm and leadership of  Sandeep Dhindsa, M.D.
